    Cross-Realm Msging

    Hey-

    I guess somehow I got banned from the USEast realms??? I can log onto all other realms, and I can use my same CDKey (which I have installed at work) and log onto all realms just fine. But at my home computer I cant log onto USeast at all. Its almost been 24 hours now.

    Question 1: Anyone have this problem before? Is it a temp ban or something? SuggName...Didnt something like this happen to you? It just gives me the "Unable to Connect" msg...


    Question 2: How do you cross realm msg people? Is it /w *[email protected] ??

    If that IS indeed how you cross realm message...is anyone on USEast RIGHT NOW that could leave their accnt name so I can test cross-realm messaging?

    Thanks.

    well...didnt seem to work



    I tried the following command:

    And it didnt work.

    I assume there arent 2 periods after the accnt name, or is there?

    I'm 99.9% sure it was disabled. Cross-realm messaging used to work before, but it no longer works. Open bnet is different, since you're still on the same realm, whether you're on open or closed. Msging closed to open bnet and vise versa works just fine.

    If you can log onto other realms, your cd-key isnt banned. You most likey have a 24hour temp ban.

    If your are using cable modem/DSL with a router, open router config utility and change 1 digit of your MAC address. I got this once and worked fine. Back on no problems. Not all routers support this, but most do.

    I have no clue as what the situation is with War3. I don't know if there's UsEast Lordaeron, UsWest Lordaeron, etc.

    at least in 1.09 you had to do: /msg [email protected]

    basicly, the account, but no * in front of it, like you normally have to

    Try /msg [email protected] in like 30 seconds...

    edit: okay according to the errormessage you have to type [email protected] for cross realm messages, so that would be [email protected] if you want to try

    ... I'm sure I did the account without the * thing before, but maybe that was starcraft...

    Cross realm messaging was removed way back in classic (pre expansion) sometime after some idiots managed to steal accounts using it (no idea how).

    Yup, definatly doesnt work.

    Yup, I definatly got a temp IP ban for whatever reason. Because I could go on a different computer (using the same CD Keys) and access everything just fine. Only from my home computer could I not log onto USEast for 24 hours.

    Shitty
